    Building Asset Hierarchies with PI AF Online Course (English)
    Oct 22 - Nov 09, 2018 | Online


    In this online course, you will learn the skills needed to successfully model your processes and equipment using Asset Framework (AF). This course discusses the methodologies needed to build representations of assets (AF Elements) and their associated data (AF Attributes). You will see how elements and attributes help users successfully organize assets into hierarchies and unify data from multiple sources, such as real-time data from the PI Data Archive, metadata from relational sources and calculated data from AF formulas.

    Through online videos and hands-on practices, you will learn how to templatize elements and add Units of Measure (UOM) to standardize models across different assets or units of an organization. By the end of the course, you will be able to leverage templates to scale models out and compare like assets using OSIsoft client tools.

    Note: Learners are encouraged to use their own software and their own data structures. This allows each learner to leave the course with something immediately valuable in their enterprise.

    Don't have access to your own PI System?

    This online course can be purchased together with the Cloud Environment, an isolated and safe PI system sandbox, designed to enhance your learning experience. You will have access to the Cloud Environment for 21 days since the initial launch.

    Configuring Calculations with PI ACE Online Course (English)
    Oct 22 - Nov 09, 2018 | Online
    In this online course, you will learn how to create, deploy, and manage your PI ACE calculations. Through online videos and hands-on exercises, you will be prepared to debug, test, register and schedule various calculations using PI ACE.

    Building PI System Assets and Analytics with PI AF (English)
    Oct 23 - Oct 26, 2018 | San Leandro, USA

    The Building PI System Assets and Analytics with Asset Framework (AF) class provides a working knowledge of the power of the AF Server, an integral part of the PI System. You will learn to define consistent representations of organizational assets and/or equipment and use these representations in simple or complex analyses that yield critical and actionable information. AF allows an application designer to identify and customize the components or elements that make up a process, associate real-time, relational or calculated data with these elements, specify organizational structure via hierarchies or connectivity relationships, and apply calculations or rules against these assets and determine how results should be displayed.

    In this class we discuss and build basic AF elements and attributes, construct calculations, and configure relational database queries. In a simulated environment, Asset Analytics are used to calculate metric data for the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We see how Event Frames are applies to monitor the production process for downtime situations and for process excursions. We explore the visualization of the information with different products of the PI Visualization Suite. In the advanced exercises we discuss combining the various elements to provide users complex information structures. We will build connections to relational databases and use that information in displays and analytics.

    Also covered in detail will be Notifications which allows users to configure custom alarms through a standard user interface based on any data source. Leveraging the generic data access and template-driven capabilities of AF users can redeploy alarm parameters in Notifications to similar assets across the Enterprise. When operational excursions occur, Notifications can send alerts to a single recipient, a group of contacts, or an escalation team that reflects the organization's chain of command.

    The class is four days long. Class will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. (9:00 a.m. in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand) and is scheduled to run until 4:30 p.m. We will break for lunch for one hour each day. When making travel arrangement for the class, please plan to remain on site to the completion of the final exercise. This should be no later than 4:30 on the last day of the class. This class provides 26 classroom hours of instruction.
